He says he's Lyin Ted no more.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, declared on Saturday night that the ignominious nickname bestowed on him by President Trump during the 2016 campaign season has been relegated to the annals of history -- as has the feud between Cruz and Trump.
"This was also a breakthrough year in which my presidential sobriquet went from 'Lyin Ted' to 'Beautiful Ted,'" Cruz joked during a speech at the Gridiron Club. Cruz was joking, in the spirit of the roast.
He also quipped: I gotta say, that new pet name felt like it really hit the mark. Why else do you think Im growing a beard?"...

3...2...1...till the Cruz attacks :)
I LOVE the job Trump is doing.
But whatever went on during the election, Ted has had Trump’s back many more times than he hasn’t.
The past is the past.
I hope he focuses on being the conservative Senator from Texas to counter balance the Bush League Republican one.
Cornyn needs to be replaced.
Dude [may I call you that?] you have got it totally correct.
I won’t say a bad word as long as he doesn’t attempt another usurpation.
He is exactly as eligible as Anwar al-Awlaki’s kids, born in Yemen to one citizen parent.
I like Cruz but he doesn’t need a beard. It didn’t do anything for Ryan.
Well i’m 50 so i’ll be 56 when the arguments here break out again :)
I won’t participate but I’ll watch! :)
Lurkin, I know SO MUCH LESS than others here about the natural born citizen issue that i can’t even put in my two cents.
Excellent resource for educating yourself:
You want me to read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????
Fortunately the meme experts over at Reddit have already projected what a bearded Cruz may look like.
wouldn’t mind TED as a member of SCOTUS...but a female will replace RBG when his first choice male nominee wont get a vote.
He does look a little better. Not good enough to do condoms and cheese in the coat closet at 3 am but a little better.
The usual suspects in 3...2...1...
Ted said something about Trumps Mother not being born in America.
The gloves came off.
He looks a little less like a cable TV preacher and that’s fine by me.
He didn’t want the job.
I just said the past is that past and he has had Trump’s back.
i’m not getting into anything else about Ted!!!
We lost many lives in thee citizenship battle and many good men :)
I’m neutral on his future!! :)
Cruz is gracious and is needed by DJT as an ally. So glad all is water under the bridge.
Wait, has he apologized for all of his lies that go back years—funding for first campaign, citizenship, eligibility for president, Iowa and others?! Seriously? Doubt it. Trump dragged his sorry a55 across the finish line, now he needs to grovel and support Trump. Trump owns him. Maybe this is first step? Apologizing should have been first step.
